Mario Gabelli Comments on Madison Square Garden Co.

Madison Square Garden Co. (NYSE:MSG) (1.6%) (MSG - $279.94 - NYSE) is an integrated sports and entertainment company that owns the New York Knicks, the New York Rangers, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, The Forum, and that iconic New York venue, Madison Square Garden. These evergreen content and venue assets benefit from sustainable barriers to entry and long term secular growth. MSG completed the separation of its associated regional sports networks in September 2015, leaving a reliable cash flow stream for MSG to reinvest and repurchase shares. In June 2018, the company announced that it was likely to spin-off of its teams, which we think could further surface value, especially as MSG expands its portfolio to include Spheres venues in Las Vegas and London.
